Pros:

new features, including Time Machine, an automated backup utility; Spaces, a way to organize applications in separate "virtual" desktops; and Spotlight, a search capability across the network. Boot Camp, which allows users to install Windows on Intel-based Macs, is included rather than being an option.

Cons:

Some hardware does not have Mac-compatible drivers, though the number of this hardware has recently become small and negligible.

Smaller library of applications in comparison to Windows.

Linux: Opensource,Free

Pros:

Option to “try before you install” using the Live CD feature - Can easily install as a dual boot or even inside Windows using the Wubi installer

Cons:

Unless you’re luck to get a CD, you do have to mess about with .ISO files and burn a disc. If you’re happy doing that, it’s not really a problem.
